We couldn't drive by without finding out what could possibly necessitate a fully table-clothed catered lunch at Echo Park Lake at 2 p.m. on a Monday. Turned out to be cast and crew from the independently produced The Last Word starring Ray Romano and Winona Ryder, which is being tagged as a romantic dramadey. No word on whether or not Winona rises from the depths of Echo Park Lake as a mermaid to tantalize weekend peddle-boaters (now that would be dramedy).
